First of all, thanks for reading this page! 😄 Alligator.io is an independent website and support is needed to help with the operating costs, and also to justify the time I can spend on the project.
For this reason, I’ve decided to add affiliate links to products that I recommend throughout the website. With affiliate links, if you click on them and then end up making a purchase, Alligator.io will earn a commission, at no extra cost to you because the products are the same price as if you bought them without going through an affiliate link. So purchasing a product through an affiliate link on this site is a great way to help support us.
Alternatively, certain links are sponsored, which means that a company paid to have their link or banner added to the website.
Both affiliate and sponsored links are clearly marked as such, therefore you can make an informed decision and know there that there might be a bias because of the financial relationship. Rest assured however that I do my absolute best to only recommend products or accept sponsors for products that I approve of and feel are of great quality and value.
I try to keep the quantity of affiliate or sponsored links minimal so as to not over-clutter the content on the website. If you feel so inclined, another great way to support us more directly is through Patreon here.
I hope this page helped you understand the nature and reasons for the affiliate and sponsored links found on this website.
All the best to you!
